This question bothers me since I was a kid.
In Sam and Max - Hit the Road, what is the green thing in the "use" icon?
enter image description here
Is it a duck? Is it a toy?

It's a useful item, apparently. Sorry, not a useful comment ;p – RedRiderX Mar 8 '12 at 1:53

It's a cartoonish Stress Toy, sort of like this guy. You squeeze them and it looks like their eyes pop out. I know I've seen them styled just like that in other cartoons, so it might be a running gag I'm unaware of.

I believe it is a Bug Out Bob. However I don't think you can actually buy them in green :(
